ACCESSORY ADAPTER AND SECURITY CRADLE FOR PORTABLE RADIOS

by Kai Siwiak, and Leon Jasinski

   A cradle for connecting a two way hand-held radio to vehicular accessories is described. The device is compact, tight weight, low cost, and provides the same connections to vehicular accessories as does the more bulky standard vehicular adapter tray.

   A slim low profile cradle slips over the portable radio in such a way that the radio accessory connections which interface the radio to an external speaker, mobile RF amplifer, mobile antenna, and external power sup. ply or battery charger are contacted. Additional connections can be provided for any of the signals available at the radio external connectors. The radio controls and keypad/display are left exposed for easy use as shown in the figure. A locking device (not shown in the figure) is provided to prevent theft.

   The accessory adapter is especially attractive for use in rental vehicles or in small cars where a bulky and conspicuous standard vehicularadapater installation is undesirable. The device is potentially low cost because t is mechanically simple and because the microphone, keypad display and controls of the radio need not be luplicated as they normally are with a standard vehicular adapter.
